Modern Cosmetics

a man named Maurice Levy invented lipstick  in push up sticks in tubes in 1915.  Mascara was invented in 1913 by  a man named T L Williams. The film director D.W. Griffith invented false eyelashes in 1916. Women have dyed their nails for centuries but modern nail varnish was invented in 1917.  Meanwhile modern lip gloss was invented in 1930 and went on sale in 1932. For centuries it was fashionable for women to have pale skin (tanned skin meant you worked outside so you must be poor, pale skin was a status symbol) but from the 1920s tans became popular.
